And now for the review:
Box Includes: Visor Clip, Car Charger (Micro USB), and documentation in English, Spanish, and French.
**Quick Note: This device also utilizes Micro-USB as do most new smart phones in the market today. It is the new standard for cell phone chargers and thus will eliminate a lot of redundant chargers in our homes, offices, and cars.
Simply charge the device over night so that it is good and ready to go for your usage. Once charged, turn it on and pair it with your blackberry device...the instructions are quite simple. The pairing process complete, you are ready to clip this in your cars visor and begin the process of becoming a road warrior.
The Visor Mount actually gives you a few language options, as follows:
Brazilian Portuguese, and
Why do you need all of these options? Simply because the Visor mount actually has a voice feedback system that provides you various bits of information. It will announce an incoming call (with the number, it will give you its status (power on, power off, pairing mode, etc).
The design of this device is slick as could be and the voice quality is quite impressive...Read more ›
I've tried Moto T505, T305, HF850, Jabra SP700, BlueAnt ST Light and ST3, Movon MK20, Bury System 8, and at least one from Parrot and a couple others I can't remember. Each had characteristics I liked, but NONE were adequately clear to the person on the other end. The VM-605 is reported to sound BETTER than talking directly through my Pearl. This is used mostly in a PowerStroke diesel Ford pickup. The diesel cackle seems to befuddle microphones. ;) The VM-605 handles that diesel background noise superbly.
All is not perfection with the VM605, however. I got spoiled by the sound quality and functionality of an old Kyocera 3035 pro-installed car kit. For years, I'd simply snap the Kyocera into its cradle and it just plain worked. Snap it out to take it with me when leaving the truck and it's disconnected. Simple. Reliable. Brainless.
Bluetooth devices, in contrast, must connect and be manually DISconnected when leaving the vehicle. Unless you venture beyond Bluetooth range, the silly thing will remain connected to the phone and incoming calls will ring inside the vehicle and customers will wonder why you're not answering the phone. This is particularly obnoxious when parking the vehicle just outside of a motel room and forgetting to shut the BT HF down and the wife rings all night wondering why I'm not answering... ;) This is true of virtually all of the Bluetooth handsfree solutions and is not meant to pick on the VM605. BlueAnt's ST 3 does an admirable job of automatically connecting and DISconnecting but the ST3 simply didn't have usable sound quality at the other end through my Pearl.Read more ›
Now dont get me wrong....this thing connects to the phone no problem (I am using a blackberry bold) and the internal speaker is suppurb. I would give that alone 5 stars. It is crystal clear, on both ends of the call. And really that is the meat and potatos of this device.
But what made me buy it is the FM modulator utility. I will be honest, when I got this thing Friday and hooked it up I was so excited. And it seemd to work really well. Scrolls the number of the person calling on the radio. Switched to music seamlessly. It was nice. But now its been 3 days of use. And here is what I have noticed:
1) It will drop the FM signal if there is no use happening for 1 minute
2) Because of 1) above, when someone calls you, by the time you hit the FM modulator button and turn the radio to the station, i will bet you that you missed the call. Because that what happened to me everytime. So really it is only good if YOU initiate the call.
3) Signal is inconsistant. Sometimes its cyrstal clear. Sometimes there is so much static it is unusable. I found myself, on an 18 mile drive, constantly searching for a new radio frequency to be clear. I can imagine if you live in a bigger city, this is impossible to do/find.
4) The info announcements via RDS on the radio screen are also inconsistant. Sometimes it would scroll the number across of the person who is dialing. And most of the time it would not.
Maybe there is some trick I am missing. Or maybe a specific sequence of steps i need to do everytime i get in the car for this to work, but until i figure that out, I am not that impressed.
But again, if you ignore the FM problems and just use its built in speaker, this thing is pretty good.
